Grocery delivery services have changed the way we shop for food, but nothing beats the selection you’ll find at one of the best farmers’ markets in Miami. Fresh vegetables, organic produce and artisanal products abound at these pop-up marketplaces. You’ll find them spread out throughout the city and in both indoor and outdoor venues, making them a good thing to do when it rains in Miami. So whether you find yourself strolling Coconut Grove on a weekend, you’re on vacation in South Beach or you’re hiding out at a Miami mall, chances are there’s a farmers’ market near you.

Every Saturday, Homestead's Glaser Organic Farms transform an unoccupied corner of Coconut Grove into a full-fledged produce market with dozens of fruit and vegetable stands, a raw bar of prepared foods and salads and coolers filled with cold-pressed juices and nut mylks. There’s even velvety vegan ice cream for sale and several rows of picnic tables on which to sit and enjoy it. Along the periphery of the square, you’ll find other local vendors selling honey, homemade soaps, handmade jewelry and other artisanal items. It’s quite the operation that takes place here, making the setup and breakdown so fascinating to watch. Much like the circus leaving town, everyone quickly dismantles their tents and packs up just after sunset, leaving no trace of the bustling day on the empty gravel lot. Sat 10:30am–6:30pm (rain or shine!); 3300 Grand Ave, on the corner of Margaret St and Grand Ave

The humble market exploded in recent years, becoming one of the largest and most well-attended in the city. It spans the length of Legion Park, from Biscayne Boulevard to Biscayne Bay, and run by Urban Oasis Project, which oversees Miami’s most important farmers’ markets. Find a cornucopia of tropical fruit and local veggies, new-age offerings like crystals and oils, plus baked goods (the Chilean empanadas are excellent), fresh kombucha and an assortment of items you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. Sat 9am–2pm; 6601 Biscayne Blvd

This long-running, weekly farmers’ market is well stocked and well attended, featuring a bounty of produce from nearby farms in the Redland and Homestead areas. Vendors set up in the beautiful tree-lined parking lot of Pinecrest Gardens, which makes shopping outdoors for produce pretty idyllic. Don’t miss the selection of local honey, tropical blooms and other specialty items, including cheese from independent dairy farmers and homemade guacamole. While the market takes place year-round, some growers opt to only participate during the fall and winter seasons. Sun 8am–2pm; 11000 South Red Rd

Before big-name stores and theaters commanded Lincoln Road, the pedestrian mall was well known for its weekend farmers’ market. Over the years, the small operation has grown from a few tables on the eastern end of the strip to a large fair that stretches nearly the entire length of the road. Find produce, as well as housewares, fresh-cut flowers and specialty items, including artisanal bread and homemade jams available all throughout. Sun 9am–6:30pm; Lincoln Rd, between Washington and Meridian Aves

The sprawling shopping complex really has it all, including a weekend farmers’ market in its central courtyard on the ground floor. While there's limited produce, you’ll find a wide selection of dried teas and spices, artisanal items, such as organic olive oils, homebaked desserts from around the world (think Greek baklava, Venezuelan golfeado and Bahamian rum cake) and handmade trinkets and toys. There are about 75 vendors present and—the best part—you’ll be shopping them all in an air-conditioned, weather-proof space. Open during mall hours; 19501 Biscayne Blvd

The adorable beachfront town hosts a weekly market every Sunday along 95th Street between Collins and Harding Avenues, just steps from the sand and a public parking lot so it’s easier on folks commuting in. It’s compact but well-endowed with local vendors selling ready-made eats like acai bowls and Peruvian dishes, as well as home decor, apparel and handmade jewelry. There are tables scattered throughout should you feel inclined to break into your loot and sit down to lunch while you’re there. Sun 9am–3pm

Outdoor markets are aplenty but none take place on the grounds of Miami’s most prestigious mansion. On Sundays, the Village at Vizcaya (the quaint complex across the street from the main house) invites folks to shop for gourmet eats, handcrafted goods and fruits and vegetables from local vendors. While a visit to the museum is not included, guests of the market have access to explore the village all afternoon long. Sun 9am–2pm; 3250 S Miami Ave

Coral Gables’ posh outdoor mall is the last place you’d expect to find a farmers’ market but on Sundays, that’s exactly what you’ll see throughout the first floor and courtyard of the Shops at Merrick Park. Vendors peddling artisanal bread, organic produce and fresh-baked goods set up across stores like Cole Haan, Burberry and Nordstrom. Talk about one-stop shopping. Sun 11am–5pm; 358 San Lorenzo Ave

Get your produce right from the source at this permanent market and flea deep south in the Redland. Find a kaleidoscope of fresh fruit and vegetables grown in nearby farms, plus native goodies like starfruit and lychees. The indoor farmers' market runs year-round, as does the fish market and plant nursery you'll find on the premises. Better bring the U-Haul. Thu, Fri 11am–6pm; Sat, Sun 7am–6pm; 24420 S Dixie Hwy

This seasonal market (it runs January through March) is as much a destination for families as it is for shoppers. Sure, there is a wide variety of fruits and vegetables for sale but market organizers also focus on providing a range of kid-friendly programming each week. Activities include chef demonstrations led by local talent, arts-and-crafts events and free gardening workshops. Bakers and homemakers selling jams and condiments are also market staples. 8am–2pm; 405 Biltmore Way
